By MITCH WEISS
Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich all but conceded Wednesday that his White House campaign is over.
He said he expects Mitt Romney will be the nominee and called on the party to unite behind the former Massachusetts governor.
But Gingrich said GOP voters didn’t agree, and that he would begin working to unite the party.
Gingrich did not formally withdraw from the race but said he is now campaigning as a “citizen.” He did not explain what he meant.
Gingrich spent Tuesday campaigning in the Charlotte area. He planned to go ahead with several scheduled stops in North Carolina in the coming days.
